Protect charitable giving incentive on tax code

posted Thursday, May 15, 2014 by Janice Fonger

Independent Sector asking for your assistance in preserving the IRA charitable rollover and two other temporary charitable provisions that expired along with 55 other tax extenders earlier this year: the enhanced deductions for donating both food inventory and land conservation easements. Tax-writers in the House are expected to consider renewal of a select number of the expired provisions in the coming weeks, and we hope to ensure they include these charitable provisions.

Independent Sector intends to send to all House Ways and Means Committee members this letter in support of the three charitable tax extenders, and specifically legislation (H.R. 4619) that has been introduced to make permanent the IRA charitable rollover provision. We encourage you to add your organization’s name to this letter to help us send a strong message that these important charitable giving incentives should be preserved. The deadline for signatures is close of business Thursday, May 22.
